, what sort of relationship should the united states have with iraq now. how did the obama administration handle the end of the war and where do we go from here. >> those are all important questions, but the whole war was built on a faulty prim is that saddam had weapons of mass destruction. >> i think it's conceded that they didn't have weapons of mass destruction. >> i remember i was in kuwait on the eve of the war. i had a gas masks, they were really fed basically a lie, if you will. >> no, i don't agree. i think that the intelligence was poor and badly done, but i do think -- >> when i say a lie, i mean the sources who were providing that intelligence, these false iraqi sources who were claiming there was poisonous gas here, chemical weapons there, that was a lie. >> i was imbedded for that period and i remember general conway was ahead of the marine forces and they intercepted the code word blood which they thought was the use of chemical weapons. >> the american forces believed that they would face chemical weapons. i remember skud missiles coming in. they believed it. i'm just sayi
what happened the first two years of the obama administration, when democrats should have been able to do anything they wanted to do, and now is when that should pay off. we shouldn't be worried about what happened last month and how that impacts the economy because, frankly, we've had no budget, no appropriations bills. the majority in the senate, i think, will change because people are tired of a senate that won't do the things that need to be done. >> let me ask you about the state of the race in missouri. this is where you had congressman akin who made a very controversial remark, which you condemn, which others condemn. you, in fact, said at the time we do not believe it serves the we do not believe it sefshz the national interest for congressman todd akin to stay in the race for senate. the issues at stake are too big, and it's simply too important. the right decision is to step aside. as we all know todd akin did not step aside. he is running as the republican. you are looking as though -- the republicans are looking as though they're going to lose that race because akin stay
, the administration sent susan rice out to tell everybody it was because of some youtube clip. so today's speech was not a great moment in the obama presidency. that's for sure. >> colin, what do you take -- think about this claim that al qaeda is weakened? certainly in some regards it is, at least when it comes to afghanistan. but in africa, extremist groups linked to al qaeda in some way, shape or form, they are certainly on the rise. so what do you think about the truth of the statement overall? >> it's absolutely true. it's objectively true. besides the fact that osama bin laden is now dead, more senior leaders in al qaeda have been removed from the battlefield in the last three-and-a-half years than in any comparable period since 9/11. and it's not just in afghanistan and pakistan. it's also in yemen, it's in somalia. and it's -- and it's elsewhere. so i think you're right that there are still affiliates of al qaeda that are active, and we still relentlessly pursue them. but there is no question that al qaeda is a weaker organization today than when president obama took office, and i think
